Hay Making

We were very lucky to start our hay making season, on would you believe it, 31st May!
This must be one of the earliest ever. Then we had to wait another month until the first week of July for good weather when we cut the grass in the field by the road to make small bale haylage. We still have two more fields to make, but the the rest of this July has been very changeable with some heavy downpours. We desperately need a dry spell so we can finish making our hay. This photo is Derek turning the grass in the field by the road on a very warm and sunny day.
